    I would be shocked if Eli was ever petty enough to suggest that he had a problem with Tiki announcing his retirement in the way he did.

    Doesn't sound like Eli at all.
    Get well soon 80.

    It is in the recap video narrated by James Gandolphini of the SuperBowl XLII Season. A snippet is shown with Tiki making his comments along the lines of Eli not being a leader, etc....etc... Then there is snippet of reporters asking Eli about Tiki's comments and Eli answers "Well, Tiki showed great leadership last season calling out Coach Coughlin and then distracting everyone with his retirement." I am sure that is not the exact quote but it is words to that effect. Directly after, it pans to Michael Strahan stating, once again somewhere along the lines of "I didn.t know Eli had it in him. Okay, he got some fight. I like that."

    He's paid for his opinions so he'll express them whenever he gets a chance.
    I have a lot to say to your first point, however, I think all of it would get me banned.

    He did on the onset of the 2007 season after Tiki attempted to call Eli out.

    Tiki was a great security blanket for Eli, early in his career. His presence contributed greatly to Eli's development.

    Tiki's nonsense with Eli came after he retired.
    Tiki may have been a security blanket for Eli, but that doesn't mean he helped Eli's development at all. I think it's pretty obvious at this point that Tiki hindered Eli's development, along with Shockey.

    PM if you want, hah. I'm really not clued up on that side of him.

    All I know of Warner's post-playing career is that he's a paid analyst, and if a paid analyst's opinions are provoking intense discussion, then that analyst is doing his job well.

    Not one of Eli's best moments.
    Honestly...I just assumed Eli was above that kind of nonsense. My bad.

    It's not so much about Warner in particular, but more generally about topics that we cannot discuss here, lol. No need to PM about it really.

    Except to his teammates who thought it was great to see Eli step up and show some fire.
